Anderson Cooper Asks Sanjay Gupta: What Do Steroids Do To A Man's "Bits And Pieces?"

With steroids in the news as much as they have been the last few days, Anderson Cooper wanted Dr. Sanjay Gupta to clear up an age-old rumor for him: what exactly do steroids do to a man's "bits and pieces?"

Sanjay explains in words Anderson was too bashful to use: "A man's testes basically produce hormones — testosterone. If you're giving the testosterone, the testes will say, "Well, look, we don't have to produce it anymore. We're already getting it somewhere else.' So they will actually shrink."


No word on what it does for women, like Debbie Clemens, who confirmed trying Human Growth Hormone earlier this week.
